There is no chance for porosity

Large-scale concrete slabs with decorative surfaces become more and more popular. The larger sizes, however, come along with increased weight: higher loads make handling more difficult. A further difficulty is the fact that the slab can be very porous owing to the manufacturing process. It is hardly possible to lay such concrete slabs with the aid of presently available vacuum lifting devices.

The vacuum lifting device Powerjet PJ-1650-B made by Probst GmbH enables fast and easy lifting of even very porous concrete slabs. A powerful gasoline engine with electric starter (6.6kW) uses a turbine...
